Jourdan Lewis thinks Lavert Hill and Ambry Thomas are 'Ahead of Where He Was'

Submitted by SkyPanther on May 30th, 2018 at 12:06 AM

Jourdan Lewis hosted the "Jourdan Lewis WR vs. DB Skills Camp" in Detroit this past weekend. Lavert Hill and Ambrey Thomas attended. Here's what he said about them, and about Michigan's secondary:

 

According to Lewis, Hill and Thomas focused on attention to detail, repeating every drill until they had them down pat. He believes both are ahead of where he was at the same point in his Michigan career.

“I’m pretty sure they’re going to be one of the best, if not the best, secondaries in the country,” he said.

Most people agree that ESPN's FPI leaves plenty to be desired, but it is still fun to read a decent speculative piece on a Tuesday in May.

Notable underrated teams: Michigan @ #11, Wisconsin @ #12

Notable overrated teams: ND @ #5, PSU @ # 8, MSU @ #10

...days until Curtis Greer (DT 1976-1979) watches the 2018 edition of his team give the ND QB some pressure, just like he did to some guy named Joe Montana in 1978.

5 days into the countdown.

It just keeps getting closer, and the excitement is just starting to build!

2019 in-state DE Michael Fletcher names top 6

2019 in-state DE Michael Fletcher names top 6

Submitted by Magnus on May 28th, 2018 at 8:43 AM

Flint (MI) Carman Ainsworth DE Michael Fletcher named a top six that includes Alabama, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. He'll announce on June 29.

https://twitter.com/bigmike810_/status/1000769430933078016

I know people have been worked up about Devontae Dobbs, Logan Brown, etc., but I think Fletcher has the potential to be the best of the in-state bunch. Right now he's a 247 Composite 3-star, the #25 strongside end, and #387 overall. He has Taco Charlton-like potential, in my opinion.

Which would it be and why?

Mine: we win The Game in 2006. Would be Big Ten Champions and at the very least the BCS title game runner-up if not win it. 

Lloyd retires after the season as opposed to a year later. 

honorable mention: 1996 OSU. The season was a failure being 8-4 anyways and we did sort of better the next year. I would trade this win if it meant OSU never fired John Cooper or at least didn't fire him after 2000. 

Football Discussion: Team with more talent: 2016 or 2018?

Non-news based off-season "I miss football" discussion.

 

Subject says it. Which team has more talent: 2016 or 2018? Weaponized Chase Winovich and weaponized Rashan Gary and Devin Bush  and Aubrey Solomon and Long and DPJ and Tarik Black and Shea Patterson and Karan Higdon? Or Peppers and Hurst and Jake Butt and Darboh and Chesson and Wormley and Taco Charlton?

 

I know this team is still fresh-ish in comparison to that team of seniors, but I see a similar level of talent in the two squads. I think 2016 gets the nod, but only barely. I think by the end of the season the gap is basically nonexistent.
